Dy tho way, I am becoming awfully
disgusted at the way our philosophers
and scientists are going on, in I ry I Hg to

use a great many big words, hld there is
not a teaspoonful of souse to the hmdicl.
I'or inst aneo, Prof. NVoodrow holds to I
the old, threadbare Ihoory, thal it is
caused by tho cooling down of tho con
ter of (he earth and the consequent
sin inking of the surface. I would like
to ask Prof. WOodrow , would that ac
count for t he killing of thousands of tish
lu Charleston harbor? Would il cause
th- lengthening of a railroad iron six
Inches? if not, lhere ls no uso in going
any further a ft cr that theory.

Where do you think the slip occurred,
Mr. MctJhee? And do you think ii was
sullleiont to kill all thoso tish? If not,
yoi had In lier drop that theory and try
another. And some wise men still hohl
on to tho old volcanic theory. This is
venerable from ago, and they arc loth
10 give ii up. I hardly think, (hough,
that If Vesuvius w en- io burst into u
million of atoms, (hat il could shake
tho earth for u thousand miles in every

what ahoul those railroad irons?
Well. I am mil much of a philosopher,
from tho find thal I have not boen follow

I havo read ti good deal ahoul earth

observers, in each lusliUIOC, found the
cloud surcharged willi elect rici tv. They
found it penetrating their bodies nt ev

know whether (ho electricity attracts
thc cloud, or Ibo cloud attracts tho
electricity, bul I do know thal tho cloud
forms u nidus, a reservoir, for Ibo elec
tricity till lt is discharged and ?cu Ito rod
through Ibo surrounding utmosphero.
Well, a cloud is u s6nil-(luld,soinl-gasse

bas never been a successful enter- i

Last week in our editorial col
umn we gave expression to ?tn
opinion on this subject, hosed upon
our observai ion and upon what wo
have heard and read of.
Since then w e lind in an exchange
tho above extract from tho New
York Sun, which gives substantial
ly the same opinion as we did.
From overy source tho testimony
of history and oxporlenco points,
with the most unerring exactness,
in but one direction on thi- point.
And all this vast accumulation
of evidence proves beyond tho
semblance of a shltdoW ol' doubt
that tho business of marrying men
to reform them is a failure. This
Is no mere idle fancy, but one of
tho saddest of truths'.
Will our girls take heed ? In I ?li
bread land to-day, how many wo?
men there be, the light of whoso
eyes ure gone, tho fountain springs
Of whoso life are dried lip, and over
the dark portraits of whose hearts
prim sorrow sits, while they are
Clothed in despair, because limy
married moil to reform them ami
have filled. Those women-mar

unl.v Winnen can, because upon tho
altar they have placed thomsolvcs,
ami most fearful has been tho snc
Wo are pleading now for tho
highest und best llltorosts of our
Southern girls, mid we say tu them
in all the earnestness of w hich we
an- capable, put no faith In that
man win? promIsosbefore marriage
Hint he will reform. He w ill not
du it. Ile may make a show of do
ing so for a time, but the chances
ure that after marriage lie will be
worse (linn Indore.
Let no girl w ho values her ow n
happiness) murry ii drinking man
with the hopi- of reforming him,
for disappointment, sorrow and n
broken heart will be her portion If
The girl who marries a drinking
man may safely calculate on hav
ing a drinking, If not a drunken
husband, as long as they both shall
live. These ure words of truth?
